We stopped at Galíto restaurant on our way home from the Westfjords and it was a great idea. We both ordered pizzas and they were delicious. Great service as well!

I brought a group to have lunch at Galito at this Akranes area, I was very impressed with their quick service and friendly manner. As asians, most would love to have a cup of hot water instead of cold water and they promptly served my...group without any questions asked nor asked us to pay at all. This restaurant is very capable to handle large groups of more than 20 pax at one time. Food was served warm and fast and they were extremely organized. Quality of food was great! Blackened Codfish was super yummy! Warm bread and butter was good as well. Dessert was the chocolate lava cake and it the chocolate which oozed out from the cake was warm and smooth.. very delicious! The only setback was that they only had a cubicle in the toilet therefore the line can be very long when the restaurant gets crowded.More

I ate the Pulled Beef Sandwich and it was the best burger I have had in a while and best food that I ate during our one week holiday in Iceland.

Galito was suggested by the Rough Guide and this restaurant did not disappoint. My husband & friends had pizza and I had the blackened cod. We were all impressed by the presentation but even more so how delicious everything was. Service, food & atmosphere, you...could not ask for more!More

Good food, nice surroundings and if you like golf --perfect. I got chicken Masala, it was very tasty and the service was excellent although they had a lot to do!

Excellent beef tenderloin ( I am Brazilian) and good home made hamburger. Pizza looks good although I did not test it . Definitely worth the stop and the deviation:-)

We arrived at random and received a warmer welcome then usual with tips about the food which was very well presented and very, very tasty. Normal price for Iceland standards. Very pleasant surprise.

Great atmosphere, service and food - for adults and children. Loved that the desert with the childrens menu was not the typical popcicle but real ice cream in a pretty bowl.

Had dinner here last night. Wife had the Pan Seared Cod and I opted for the bacon burger with fried egg (since I hadn’t had a proper breakfast...). Burger was just what I was hoping for and never had chance! We started the meal with...the lobster soup which was surprisingly good since the soup included white chocolate as an ingredient — who thought that was a good combination??? Lobster and white chocolate?? But the combination worked very well!More

Very nice place , amazing food . Prices are quite high like everywhere in Iceland but this place definitely deserves it. Big portions, kind and polite staff always around you . Easy to get there from main road. Definitely recommend!

While many people are put off by the astronomic prices in Icelandic restaurants, I would definitely recommend biting the bullet once and visiting this eatery - the food and choices are simply out of this world! :)
